Happy Rocky Road Ice Cream Day! Despite the chilly weather we’ve been having here in PA, I’m determined to celebrate anyways!

According to, Rocky road ice cream was invented during the Great Depression. It served as a way to take people’s minds off the rocky road their own life was going through.

Rocky Road Ice Cream traditionally consists of chocolate, nuts, and marshmallows. However, many varieties exist.

Because you know I love to bake, I also want to share a few other recipes I found inspired by the great ice cream.
